Re: ur craZZy

I'd like to second that motion! I have a 74 260Z early mod. and the only trouble I have out of it is during the periods in between the times I drive it I have a hard time keeping the battery charged.

Z-forever,
REBEL Z

No, logical

Ok, so firstly, stopping/starting (ie dropping off pizzas, picking them up, dropping them off...) hurts fuel economy.
My Z gets around 20 miles per gallon, which is fair for stop-starting driving (backed by previous threads relating to milage).
My girlfriend's Ford Festiva Trio 1997 gets around 60% more per gallon than my 79zx.
Now, all I'm saying is, if you're paying for your own fuel, and you get paid a pathetic wage, you want a car with the best fuel economy you can get.
And you don't want to be broken down at the side of the road with someone's pizza getting cold.
